Program Notes

There’s nothing quite like that feeling of a perfect summer day enveloping you in its warmth and joy. Join CMS for an evening of the musical equivalent, which will warm and uplift your spirits.  Haydn’s serene Trio in A major and Dvořák’s bohemian inspired Op. 51 String Quartet lead into Schubert’s beloved “Trout” quintet, a masterpiece composed for friends, based on a song about a fish.
